 “Reclaiming our Nature” Contemplative Program: Spring Retreat

Meditation teacher and University of Notre Dame research professor Deirdre Guthrie presents the second of our 2018 seasonal contemplative programs, with the spring retreat drawing from the germinating plants and budding flowers to awaken our senses. The session features a variety of meditation activities and exercises to guide you through your inner landscapes of well-being as you honor this time of regeneration and rebirth.  Please dress for a short outdoor walk and gentle movement drawn from yoga and qigong, and consider an early arrival for a delicious lunch beforehand in the Fernwood Café.
